Getting FIT doesn't have to mean you have to live at the gym!

Feeling good in your own skin includes eating well, getting enough sleep, staying hydrated and moving your body. I also like to add in MENTAL wellness, even though it makes some of us uncomfortable, looking after your mind… may be the most important aspect in helping you to reach your goals.

In this article we’ll have a look at:

1. FITNESS: 7 of the best every day moves

2. NUTRITION: How could Juice Plus+ Complete shakes help you get fit for summer?

3. MENTAL HEALTH: Doing it together vs. rather alone

4. SLEEP: Working WITH your lifestyle

5. HYDRATION: Don’t complicate it!


1. FITNESS: Did you know that every day “moves” can have a positive effect on your body?  


We often think sports need to include cardio, endurance, or strength training, but doing every day activities can get you started and keep you moving.

7 of the best everyday moves: Get your blood flowing by tweaking your everyday routine. This adds to your overall amount of time dedicated to fitness, improving your health markers.

1. Bicycles: Ride your bike to work, to do the shopping or to visit friends at their place. Create bicycle groups with friends to ride to different parks for coffee or an evening chat.

2. Your own two feet: Get off the train or bus one stop early and walk the rest of your journey.  Walk just to enjoy the peace and quiet, or ring up a friend and catch up while you walk.

3. Your own energy: Use the stairs instead of escalators and elevators. This not only saves electricity but adds minutes or even years to your life span.

4. Get up from your desk: Walk to meet someone instead of making a phone call or zoom call. Get up and meet them for water, coffee, or tea. Hydration + movement + social connection.

5. Get up from your chair: We sit way too much, keeping our bodies stiff and not in any kind of energetic flow. Set an alarm every hour to get up and stretch, move, breath and look away from the television, telephone, or computer screen.  Sometimes getting a foam roller for your home or office becomes the motivator to move and stretch.

6. Clean your home: Do not underestimate the power of cleaning the household! Vacuuming, mopping, scrubbing, gardening and wide limb movements are excellent to get your heart pumping.

7. Get social: Form running or sports groups with work colleagues and friends. The motivation comes from connecting with others, laughing, and having a great time. Consider volleyball, badminton, aqua aerobics, football, or old school bowling.

2. NUTRITION: How could Juice Plus+ Complete shakes help you get fit for summer?


The basis of good nutrition begins with eating a variety of different foods that include plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and appropriate sources of protein. When you’ve got variety, all the important nutrients will be there to support your fitness routine.

So, how could Juice Plus+ Complete shakes help you get fit for summer?

Juice Plus+ Complete shakes are not only tasty and satisfying, they are also considered a meal replacement for weight control. 

Having a shake makes it easier to keep track of your calorie intake along with providing the

nutritional elements of a whole meal. Each shake delivers a balanced mix of carbohydrates, protein, and fat plus each shake contains a useful amount of fibre and micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals.

Situations where a Juice Plus+ Complete shake is ideal:

  • Short on meal prep time.
  • Running to pick up the kids.
  • When you must work through lunch.
  • On the way to the gym.
  • When it’s too late to cook.
  • When you want to be more consistent with what you eat.
  • When you want a dietary approach that is easy to follow.
  • The kids want to eat pizza, but actually you don’t.
  • When you hate buying so many ingredients. 
  • When you want it to work and be simple.


Why Complete works:

  • The best meal replacement shakes allow you to get balanced nutrition with the necessary calories from carbohydrates, fat, and protein along with appropriate amounts of vitamins and minerals needed for a complete meal.
  • Complete shakes taste great and have a thick and creamy texture. 
  • They are low calorie while providing balanced nutrition.
  • The shakes are easy to prepare, making them accessible to you when on the go.
  • Complete shakes are fun to adapt by adding in fruits and veg to your smoothie. 


How to use Juice Plus+ Complete for weight control.

You can replace a maximum of 2 meals a day with a Complete by Juice Plus+ shake. Imagine having a frosty vanilla shake in the morning for breakfast, a yummy chocolate shake for lunch, a mid-afternoon snack of fruit and then a well-balanced meal for dinner. 

Alternatively… your day can look like:

  • Shake for breakfast.
  • Healthy balanced meal for lunch with work colleagues.
  • Shake for dinner, after the gym.

If you want to maintain your weight, replace one meal a day with a Juice Plus+ Complete shake.


How to jazz up your Juice Plus+ Complete shakes with a recipe!

To Juice Plus+ Complete Vanilla shakes, along with 250ml skimmed milk, add in:

  • Mango slices, banana with a handful of spinach
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice powder or cinnamon powder + an apple

To Juice Plus+ Complete Chocolate shakes, along with 250ml skimmed milk, add in:

  • 1 banana and baby spinach leaves
  • Orange slices
  • Handful of frozen raspberries
  • Handful of frozen cherries
  • For the bold one… 2 tsp of ginger powder + a shake of chili pepper flakes.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Remember when you add more ingredients to the shake, the nutritional profile will change than what is listed on pack. 
  • Also drink a lot of water when eating Juice Plus+ Complete shakes. 
  • Juice Plus+ Complete is not a replacement for a balanced, varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. So, make sure that other foods are included in your diet as well and that you keep active.

3. Doing Together vs. Rather Alone


Without judgement, because there is no right or wrong, do you know what type of person you are? Do you prefer exercises together or rather alone? 

3 Reasons to Exercise Together.

1. Work is tough: When you work hard and constantly need to be switched on, it is so much fun to get active together with friends to relax and be yourself. Laugh, move, and sweat the stress out.

2. The week is boring: When life is too predictable and horribly repetitive, make a set time to meet up with friends to be active. This brings a bit of spice to life where you can even change the sport activity week to week.   

3. You wobble: You get easily discouraged and need others who are already motivated to bring you along and get you going. They keep you accountable.


3 Reasons to Exercise Alone.

1. You deal with people all day. Being with people (or children) all day without a moment of time for yourself can be overwhelming, especially for introverts. Exercising alone can help you to relieve stress, digest all the happenings of the day and help you to refocus. Exercise here, becomes the ultimate break to rest and reset.

2. Your schedule is unpredictable: If you don’t know what your day to day is like, you may need to have your workout gear with and find ways to squeeze it in before work, over lunch, late afternoon run or after work. 

3. You wobble: You get easily discouraged by others; therefore, you need to just go at it on your own when the moment strikes. You keep you accountable.

4. SLEEP: Working WITH your lifestyle


What is your relationship with rest? Do you treasure your sleep? Or believe you will sleep when you’re dead? That sounds harsh!!

Numerous studies show that if we get less sleep than we need, our weight tends to increase. We haven’t proven the reasons why, but we can surmise that it has something to do with willpower. When you are tired, you don’t have the “power” to make better choices. It becomes easier to comfort the tiredness with sweet treats and caffeine that gives us a boost of energy in that moment. When you are tired your body seeks energy, in other words, it wants you to eat more food to get more energy.

What to do?

  • Keep track of your sleep for a week to see where you are.
  • Assess how much sleep is appropriate for your age and lifestyle (e.g. sports people and pregnant people may need more than usual, older folks, less.) In general, 7-9 hours is a good range.
  • Consider the quality of your sleep? Do you wake up frequently during the night? Do you feel rested in the morning? 
  • Then, focus on getting better sleep and see if anything shifts in your daytime including better mood, more focus, a general feeling of wellbeing AND will power 

5. HYDRATION: Don’t complicate it!


Yes, we hear that we need to drink 8 glasses of water every day, but that is not 100% true.
